Real Talk w/Stef - Progressive Overload

Progressive overload is the concept of gradually increasing the exercise demand on your body to achieve continued improvement. Your body is amazing. It adapts to the physical demands that are placed on it, and this is why an exercise becomes easier the more it is done.

For example, someone who has never completed a push up may find doing a single push up very difficult. Completing a single push up every second day, they would find it easier to complete two push ups, and so on.

Progressive overload is essential in order to continue becoming fitter, stronger and to improve in your training.
